Hi all, Sunday marked the retirement ride of my favorite vintage frame, and because I cannot afford both modern and vintage, I am selling my collection of vintage bike parts. I would like to sell it to one person rather than part it out. I would also hope to sell it to somebody who would come to Madison to verify condition and take possession. In short, I have a v. ugly, but straight 1970 or 71 Peugeot PX-10 frame, 57 cm c-t-c; and enough vintage parts for two complete bikes and some spares. All is from late '70s to early '80s, in good condition and top-of-the line for the day, mostly Campagnolo, but with some Simplex and some Japanese. I am asking $1,000 for the whole mess, which is on the low side of fair, I think. Contact me off-list if you are seriously interested, and I will send you an inventory.
By the way, the retirement of my frame was celebrated on the Wright Stuff Century just west of Madison in the hilly country near Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin. Just 14 months after being forced off the bicycle by severe disc problems, I completed all 106.1 miles, averaging a blistering 10 miles per hour on my vintage steel ride.
